How snobby. If you didn't win the birth lottery you wouldn't like it if people laughed at you.
I know plenty of people here who were denied opportunities because of Bantu education, and nobody deserves to be made fun of for language skills.
Just as I make mistakes in Afrikaans and my Japanese has a long way to go I would not appreciate someone putting me down over it.
As there are 11 official languages in South Africa, most people have to find a common language to speak in, and this is English.
A large proportion of people do not have the money or the opportunities to get a good English education.
This is not grounds for a point.
